Paratech Structural Shoring Pneumatic Control Equipment is built to be durable and long-lasting. All Paratech control equipment is designed in house and manufactured at our headquarters in the United States. On top of our core control products, we offer a wide variety of accessories, nipples, couplings and other connectors to ensure your structural shoring pneumatic control system works the way you want it to.
Paratech’s top concern with all of our equipment is safety, and so Paratech’s Pneumatic Control system is designed with multiple fail-safes to ensure the operator is always protected. The regulator, deadman controller, and shutoff valves are designed with integrated safety relief valves to protect the system from over pressurizing. All couplings are designed to vent air unless locked to the inlet nipple, ensuring that the system cannot be charged before it has been safely connected at each and every step. Additionally, all Paratech couplings and fittings are made of corrosion-resistant and non-sparking brass to work in dangerous environments. At Paratech, safety is paramount.
The Dual Deadman Controller is milled from aircraft-grade aluminum and hard coat anodized to be tough and durable. Both color-coded pressure gauges are housed inside the controller body, protecting them shocks and damage. Inflation is controlled through color-coded, deadman style push-buttons, green to inflate, red to deflate. An integrated safety relief valve protects against over-pressurization. An internal check valve also prevents air from escaping if the feed hose is cut or severed. All couplings have a threaded safety lock system that vents system air unless locked, ensuring the system can only be fully pressurized if all couplings have been properly secured. The controller also has an easily replaceable light to illuminate the gauges in the dark.
The Paratech Strut Regulator is milled from aircraft-grade aluminum and hard coat anodized to be tough and durable. The output pressure gauge is housed in a tight-fitting protective shroud. It comes with a pressure relief valve to prevent any over-pressurization of the system. The pressure adjustment knob is large and easy to manipulate with gloved hands and has the ability to vent pressure when adjusting down.
